Bill Davis Racing has hired 20-year-old Brian Scott as a full-time driver in the 2009 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

The youngster from Boise, Idaho, has competed in 23 truck events the last two seasons. This season, Scott has one top-10 in 16 starts and is 21st in the points.

"We are excited about the addition of Brian Scott to our program," Davis said. "Brian has done a great job this season learning what it takes to win in the truck series and we are looking forward to having him in one of our Toyota Tundra entries in 2009. Our two veteran drivers, Mike Skinner and Johnny Benson, have done a great job mentoring both Scott Speed and Michael Annett, and I think they will both take Brian under their wings."

Bill Davis Racing's truck program has been the most successful in the garage since joining the series in 2004. Since winning its first race in 2005, BDR has amassed 22 victories. The team, based in High Point, N.C., has accumulated 91 top-five and 144 top-10 finishes along with 39 poles.
